Your error log should have more information.  Check it for details.

This snippet, in the absence of other forms of access control, will treat any 
file ending in ".cgi" as a CGI.

  AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
  <Files ~ "\.cgi$">
    Options +ExecCGI
    <IfModule mod_ssl.c>
      SSLOptions +StdEnvVars

Stick something like that at the top level of your configuration file, if 
appropriate.  Take a look at your error log if you still have trouble.
